Salmon Mango Yee Sang - Chinese Lunar New Year 2011

Another dish that's a must for Chinese Lunar New Year.  Raw fish translated to Chinese is Yee Sang means good fortune. Tossing Yee Sang is believed to stir up good fortune and also bring luck. Today i prepare this Salmon Mango Yee Sang, I find that it is a very good combination especially added with roasted sesame seed, five spice powder and roasted peanut plus the super delicious sweet and sour plum sauce. Nobody can refrain from this !!!
Well arrange shredded ingredients on a big serving platter 

Pour the plum sauce mixture over the Yee Sang and sprinkle five spice powder, roasted sesame seeds and roasted peanut
